    For some bizarre reason, my iphone backup has changed it's name from Simon's iPhone to Mikey's iPhone !!!
    No files have changed in the backup whatsoever, just the name.
    When I connect via bluetooth in my car, it displays Mickey's iPhone on the iDrive display.
    Anyone know how the hell this happened and how to change it back?

    Don't know how it happened but try this:

    Fire up iTunes and connect your iPhone. When it appears in the left-hand column, right click on the name to change it to whatever you want. Having done that, synch the phone. You're done! :)
